    In general, landscape architects don't design pools, but they may provide guidance on where a pool could be placed and how it could be integrated into the surrounding landscaping.

    A pool is usually considered a structural element and would be designed by a civil or structural engineer. However, as with any structure, there may be elements of the pool that are related to the landscape, such as paving around the edge of the pool, plants and hardscaping around the pool, etc., that would be designed by a landscape architect.

    No, landscape architects typically do not design pools. Pool designers are a separate profession.

    No. Landscape architects typically design outdoor spaces that include gardens, parks, playgrounds, and greenways. They may also design some features of residential and commercial properties such as driveways, fences, and retaining walls, but they do not typically design pools.

    Pool designers are a separate profession. They specialize in designing swimming pools and aquatic facilities.

    Pools can be designed by landscape architects, but more often they are designed by pool designers who specialize in pools. A landscape architect may be involved in the overall design of a property and include a pool as part of the plan, or they may be brought in after the pool is designed to do things like add landscaping around the pool or help with drainage.

    Not typically. Landscape architects may design small ponds or swimming pools as part of a larger landscape project, but they are not typically hired to design only the pool. Pools are typically designed by pool designers or engineers.

    No, landscape architects typically do not design pools. Pool designers are a separate profession. However, landscape architects may be involved in the planning and design of areas that include pools, such as parks and private residences.
